Responses of ring-necked pheasant chicks (Phasianus colchicus) to conspecific calls



Responses of ring-necked pheasant chicks (Phasianus colchicus) to conspecific calls



Animal Behaviour 21(1): 1-9



The locomotor responses of pheasant chicks to conspecific calls and the vocalizations of the chicks relating to their locomotor responses were measured in a test apparatus permitting approach or retreat movements. The brood-gathering call and the content call elicited strong approach from chicks. The alarm call and the squeak call inhibited locomotion in chicks. The hiss call, brood-caution call, fright call and flock call do not greatly affect the locomotion of subjects. The flock call appears to be primarily a care-soliciting call. Conspecific calls appear to be important to the survival of young pheasant chicks in the wild.
